In some modern Linuxes, one may re-mount a currently-mounted filesystem, which can be useful if, say, some of the mount parameters have changed. Usually this can be accomplished while the filesystem is in use.

Is there any equivalent command in Solaris v9, or am I just stuck having to umount and then mount the filesystem?

The filesystem is ufs, if it makes any difference.

You need to use "-o remount" option with mount command, eg:
mount -o remount,rw /usr
mount -F ufs -o remount,logging /var

man mount

Fudge. Yeah, there it is. Actually, gotta read "man mount_ufs" and not just "mount". It's buried in there.
